PSU kicks late field goal beats the Illini 38-33

No wait, this is basketball season what was I thinking? Penn State kept its NCAA tournament dreams alive last night by beating the fighting non-offensive mascots in the ugliest game in basketball history 38-33. How bad was it?

Chester Frazier and Meacham had seven points each to lead Illinois, which did not shoot any free throws -- the first time a team didn't have an attempt in a game at the 46-year-old Assembly Hall.

Neither team scored until Illinois forward Mike Davis' jumper more than 4 minutes into the game.

About 10 minutes in, both teams were still in single digits while shooting a combined 5-for-26 from the field.

Illinois' point total was its lowest since a 33-31 loss to Minnesota in 1947.

Battle, [was] the game's leading scorer with 11 and the only player the score in double figures Wednesday


If you would like complete and coherent coverage, head on over to BSD, I'm sure the triumvirate will have it covered much more thorough then you could ever want or expect… that's how they roll.

For some reason I still think that game was more exciting than any NBA game I've seen in years.

True, I'm not a basketball fan but I especially dislike the NBA.
